Gov. Corbett signs anti-choice bill

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2013 at 2:55 PM

As was expected, Gov. Tom Corbett today signed House Bill 818.

As we've noted in previous coverage, the bill prohibits health insurers from offering coverage for abortions for anything other then rape, incest or the life of the mother, on state-run healthcare insurance exchanges.

The exchanges, which will be created as part of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, are due to take effect in 2014. They will offer insurance to residents who can't get insurance through an employer.
